Place mat Medusa - 267
With their vibrant patterns and rich colours, our lightweight cotton mats are a delight at the table. The place mats are cut individually, which means that, if a grand pattern was chosen, each one is unique and features a different detail. The mats are made with three-centimetre-wide mitred corners.

The right care
Our cotton products are easy to care for. Although we recommend a washing temperature of 40 °C, our products are also able to cope with 60 °C without any problem. To avoid damaging the look and feel of the fabrics, use detergents without fabric brighteners or softeners. Low spin speeds and not using water-saving programmes also have a positive impact on the durability of the products.
- We recommend a washing temperature of 40 °C or 60 °C

The diversity of marine life was the great passion of German biologist Ernst Haeckel. He captured the beauty of jellyfish - also called Medusa - in sensational drawings. One of his studies served as the inspiration for this design, which was developed in collaboration with the Ernst-Haeckel-Haus museum in Jena, Germany. Ethereal creatures, floating as if bodiless - spellbound on fabric.
